One of the most notable products from Weber was developed in 1921 by artist and chemist Fred Jr., the son of founder Frederick Weber. Original Permalba® White Artists Oil Color was the first of its kind in that it was free of toxic, lead-based pigments that had been commonplace to artist’s oil paints. It is comprised of Titanium and other pigments and prepared in a process that was developed after extensive laboratory testing and is AP nontoxic. This acid and alkalis free formulation has a smooth buttery consistency that dries to an elastic-like film and will not yellow with age. Original Permalba® White boasts superior opacity and coverage and still remains the standard in artists white oil paint today.
